If you want your HF dipole to have better gain and some directivity, try this "classic" Extended Double Zepp Antenna.

The EDZ antenna described by Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) is a "collinear array of two 5/8 waves in phase", which delivers approximately 3 dB gain broadside to the antenna.  According to Stan, construction of this antenna is simple and uses locally available materials. Just follow the diagram provided, and you should have a dipole with a bit more"punch" for your ham station.
